The eyes have it.

My youngest daughter's eyes are really striking.

Hard as it is to believe, that isn't just parental pride speaking.

She has dark brown hair and golden skin with these large, light eyes framed by huge eyelashes.

They take my breath away and they irritate me all at the same time - they are so beautiful that they attract almost too much attention, which frankly isn't good for her on so many levels...

When Birth Grandma came for a visit last week, she brought an unexpected gift - recent pictures of Birth Mom, from only a week before.

Birth Mom needed someone to take care of her for a few days and Birth Grandma ended up being the one to do it.

Looking into the face of Birth Mom was, stunning, because she stares up at me from the photos with my youngest daughter's eyes.

it is very powerful to look at a birth parent and see something in them that we cherish in our children. For me everytime I see Baby R's smile I know that he got it from his mother. They have the same eye brows too. Everytime I look at his face, I'm reminded of her and can send a prayer that she is safe and a thank you for this beautiful son.

Thank you for sharing the image of beautiful eyes sparkling up at you from your daughter.
